Barack Obama, our next President

Hmmm...

Maybe Democrats and black have learned their lesson about harming themselves...

"Members of the Congressional Black Caucus appear undecided so far on whether to support a call for a boycott of Florida over the Trayvon Martin case, with Maryland Rep. Donna Edwards saying Sunday such a move could be "devastating" to some communities in the state.

Edwards, a Democrat, told “Fox News Sunday” that she has yet to fully examine the call to boycott, as proposed by civil rights leader the Rev. Jesse Jackson.

Jackson said after a Florida jury found neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman not guilty July 13 of all charges in the fatal 2012 shooting of Martin, a black teenager, that his Rainbow PUSH Coalition would consider a boycotting on Florida, which he characterized as a “kind of apartheid state."

Tonto not celebrate either and wish it were otherwise. He know quite a few deserving soldiers and their families and sometimes admire their dedication, but he feel same way about teachers. Tonto not understand why he asked to celebrate one and not the other? Seem to Tonto that heartland conservatives sure like to start wars and spend public money like water. Tonto concerned this not be a coincidence. Tonto concerned that people who covet money see military action as money-making opportunity...
Tonto also wrestle with concept of offending his friends who may have been in military and who abused no one during that time, but he pretty sure matter too important to avoid discussion. If some person or entity is making money off conflicts they start themselves, Tonto want to know about it so he can act.
Today in NYT Tonto read about how Goldman Sachs move ingot aluminum around from warehouse to warehouse to drive up price of aluminum by handling and storing it more. Not accident, Goldman does this on purpose. Tonto's sense of this discovery is that the military should be used to round up the complicit parties at Goldman Sachs and shoot them for they are traitors and thieves of the most pernicious sort. Use military here at home to end expensive political crisis brought on by greedy "Americans" whose idea of patriotism is made in china. Then Tonto celebrate military as heroes.
Tonto one smart Injun. I agree. But now your truths have angered the whiney azzed baggers on here...But then again what don't? They danced in the street for all of the Bush-Cheney lies and unecessary wars, along with ruining our economy as they defended corporate America all the while their fat empty heads were submerged up their azzes. Now suddenly these idiots want us to believe that they have all the answers?????Talk about minions.

Now, Tonto understand names like Goldman or Sachs aren't necessarily tied to any particular cult or sect or country but it peculiar how often names like that turn up when there's dirty money around. Might be coincidence but sure happen a lot... much like Tonto and women named "Sharon." Also peculiar is the right-wing new-found commitment to Jews and Israel. After all just a few years ago they used them to decorate trees in Atlanta, places like that. Sure was quick turn-around, Tonto wish they'd get on the stick with the Native Americans. That why we build casinos, we want Americans to love us too.

Rick Perry is an idiot that even dumb bell George W Bush looks 'smart' next to. "When Governor Rick Perry announced that he planned to tour the country in hopes of bringing businesses away from other states to Texas, Lewis Black found it a little distasteful.

That is, until he came to New York. Then, it became personal. "

Editorial: Desperately flailing at Obamacare as it saves lives and money

The old adage that “it’s easier to tear something down than it is to build it” has never been on more vibrant display than during the current debate on implementing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

The health care law’s critics, who have spent more than three years trying to gut it, are now gleefully predicting that as more of its provisions are rolled out next year,“Obamacare” will be seen as an expensive flop. It’s as if someone spent three years tearing parts off a car and then predicted it wouldn’t run very well.

On Thursday President Barack Obama — who has embraced the once-pejorative term “Obamacare”— surrounded himself at the White House with people who already are benefiting from the law and declared that it “is doing what it’s designed to do:(delivering) more choices, better benefits, a check on rising costs and higher quality care.”

Jon Favreau, the president’s former top speechwriter, argues that the uptick in the anti-Obamacare crusade is a result of Republicans’ being “terrified that Obamacare could actually work.” In a July 11 article in thedailybeast.com , Mr. Favreau asked,“If Republicans are so confident Obamacare will end badly, why not just shut up about it?”

It’s a good question, and the answer seems to be that there is still right-wing political mileage in the issue — particularly now, as the immense difficulties of putting the law’s coverage mandates into effect become apparent. Convincing the uninsured to buy health insurance, and requiring employers to offer it, were always going to be the tough part. But thanks in part to Republican obstructionism, it’s turned out to be tougher than the administration envisioned.

....The fact remains that even though some big insurance companies have refused to sign up, states that have created insurance exchanges have seen the “magic of the marketplace”— once a favorite phrase of Republicans — drive down the cost of individual health insurance policies. In New York, Oregon and California, rates have fallen as much as 50 percent.

And while the Supreme Court famously upheld the individual mandate, it ruled that state governments could not be required to expand their Medicaid programs. More than 20 states, including Missouri, have refused to expand Medicaid programs to include the working poor, despite the huge financial windfall it would create. To say nothing of healthier populations and lower costs for the privately insured.

This stubborn refusal is driven strictly by politics, by the perverse hope that by keeping people sick and costs high, Republicans — who still have no better alternatives — can salvage some form of nihilist victory. This is profoundly shameful.

The Affordable Care Act is not perfect and may never be. Inevitably, economics will force it to give way to a single-payer national health care system. But in the meantime, it’s saving lives, saving money and making health care available to those who, as in parable of the Good Samaritan, were left to suffer at the side of the road.

Consumer Watchdog Report Shows Keystone XL Raises American Gas Prices

–The Keystone XL pipeline will raise gasoline prices in the United States, hiking prices at the pump 20 to 40 cents per gallon in the Midwest, with no long-term economic benefit to the U.S. economy, says a new report by Consumer Watchdog.

The report finds that:

Drivers, especially in the Midwest, would pay 20 cents to 40 cents more at the pump if the disputed pipeline were built, as the current discount of up to $30 a barrel for Canadian oil disappears.
The true goal of multinational oil companies and Canadian politicians backing the pipeline is to reach export outlets outside the U.S. for tar sands oil and refined fuels, which would drive up the oil’s price.
With U.S. oil production rising fast, any “energy security” benefit for the U.S. would vanish as American oil output exceeds that of Saudi Arabia in about 2020, according to the International Energy Agency.

The report, produced by Research Director Emeritus Judy Dugan and independent energy analyst Tim Hamilton, utilized industry data, public records and company documents. Access the report, charts and graphics here:

Stand your ground laws DO encourage people to fight when the best course of action is to walk away. Once can say that Trayvon was "standing his ground" against someone he perceived to be a threat. By your definition, that would make Zimmerman the "asshole". It very well could be that it was the "stand your ground" law that gave Trayvon the confidence to escalate the situation into one of violence.
Zimmerman was defending himself, not standing his ground. I doubt that he perceived Trayvon as a threat to his life before the attack. That is the very reason Zimmerman's attorneys used the self-defense argument.
It would have been difficult to prove that Trayvon was threatening Zimmerman's life when it was Zimmerman who was following Trayvon. Heck, it could very well be possible that, had they used the stand your ground defense, the prosecutors may have been able to show that Trayvon was the victim...not Zimmerman. Hmmmmm. I'm beginning to understand why those stuck on "stand your ground" are so upset by the verdict.
In your home or in your car there is little option to "stand your ground."

On the street, the situation is somewhat grayer, but obviously someone like Zimmerman could not run away from someone like Trayvon. So what does one do?

The primary difference in "Castle Doctrine" or "stand your ground" laws as opposed to traditional self defense is that they typically provide immunity from civil suits. Many people have shot armed intruders inside their house and still lost civil suits because the injured perp appears sympathetic to the jury.

Of course, none of that can be proven in this forum, any more than any of Obama's fairy tale is provable.

Galt takes your response to mean that Bocajew Jean from Queens is opposed to citizens volunteering to maintain their cities in the face of the failure of government.
